12th September -FireBreathers

Wednesday 12th saw the second team trial session delivered and what a session it was.

Tom had set up a Fire-Breathers session, which is Crossfit slang for those Crossfitters out there that eat back to back wod’s up for breakfast, who work so hard that you have that burning sensation sitting on your lungs and throat -Nice.

I could sense from the build up that this was going to be an epic session.


1rm Thrusters

Set up for Grace  (you have to watch this video Miranda is awesome!)

30 Clean and Jerks for time (42/62kg) The rule is Ground to overhead, full lock out.

10 minute cap.

The faster you got through Grace the more rest you had.

Getting ready for Cindy

5 Pull ups, 10 Push ups, 15 Squats

AMRAP 20 Minutes


Before I continue I have to admit that I totally screwed Grace up and i don’t even understand why………….

Let me explain.

Grace should be Ground to Overhead right..but for some reason I went ahead and must have completed around 20 reps from a hang position! I was the only numpty in the class doing it like that, I must have been in my own world.

I had every intention of running through Grace again on Friday and then post my result but the DOMS is still pretty harsh even as I type. I defo need to work on volume if I am going to make the team.

Anyways aside from that I was quite happy with my effort.

It was the first time doing pull ups in a wod rx’ed. Tough but such a good feeling!

I had to reduce my push ups from full to knee push ups by about round 4 but I am ok with that. I just need to work on that.

My Scores.

Thruster 52.5kg

Grace 5.30 (20 reps from hang)

Cindy 9.5 rounds

Attempting a group hug was impossible!

An Epic session with some Epic team mates.
